I know the '98 model has some quirky 1 year only things, and I think the '99 has some as well, but a great thing is that lots of other parts are interchangeable from the various years of 400, 426, and 450. I would say a con is the single 400 on the street just can't handle the highway for long distances, but most try to stay away from that anyway. Depending on condition, mileage/hours, accessories etc, $2000 seems like a fair price to me.

They are a noisy engine to start with but they get a real clunky sound when on the way out.
There is also a specific starting method with the decompression lever if it's still got the '99 cams in it. (Can swap with '03 cams for auto decomp)
Easy to start if done properly! Will hurt if done wrong
On the up side there are HEAPS of parts available and relatively cheap too.
I'm actually considering buying another one myself. I've been riding a 250f, but it's just not like the 400 beast !

I would pass on that one and keep looking.
